Riot Games has finally released their newest animated series Arcane on Netflix. Adapted from League of Legends, the series was created by Brandon Beck, Marc Merril, and Nicolo Laurent. Also, you will be treated to scenes full of blood, violence, and struggle. Here is the detailed information you need to know about the Arcane Netflix Series, including the episode release date, casting, story leaks, etc.
This series adaptation of the game tells the origin story of Jinx and his younger brother Vi. They are two brothers who are separated by twin cities, namely Piltover and Zaun. Piltover is an upside-down utopia, while Zaun is a violent street and has very different conditions. The story will explore until it reveals the reason why the battle took place.
In the knowledge of existing MOBA games, Jinx and Vi are not compatible with each other. These siblings sometimes insult each other, and Jinx mocks the sisters whenever they meet. Since the extraordinary events that happened to them, both led Vi to become the sheriff of Piltover, and Jinx has become a notorious Zaun terrorist in the Arcane Netflix Series plot.
Arcane will show how the sisters got to where they are through the storyline of this animated series. All of the revealed Champion characters will be from Piltover and Zaun. As a result, most of the Arcane plots will be set in both cities. When the first trailer was released, the new animated series was predicted to take place in the utopian region of Piltover and Zaun.
